A catfish is a fish,

Hi:
 
Are there any inshore guides in the club or can someone recommend a few guides. We are looking for a day trip for four, two fly fishermen and two spinning anglers. We will be in Santa Barbara but would to someplace esle near by.

For inshore, see the post about Tony Vultaggio:

Tony's larger boat would be ideal for all of you.
 
There are several guides for the beach area, call Eric at the Artful Angler (805 566-5900). Some also guide at inland lakes for bass, etc.
 
For the closest good trout, see Guy Jeans:

Thanks, Joe. I will check with my brothers and see if they want to do it.
 
Haven't been out to SB in 32 years, but those shots on the post about Tony look like they are right off the beach downtown.
 
Might be someplace we can hit with kayaks.

True you might fish some spots from a kayak but you can not cover as many nor find the most productive spots without a fast boat and a guide. What if the best place to hit that day is out in the channel? Fishing from a boat like Tony's is a heck of a lot more comfortable than a kayak and you will be fishing all day and when you move miles to a new spot it will be quick. That's a lot better than hoping you launched in the right place and spending half the day paddling instead of fishing.

good advice. we probably will do one day with the guide and fill in the other days with yaks and surf fishing.
